R.I.P. Abe Vigoda

In the end more famous for his longevity than his acting career, Abe's legacy includes a standout performance in THE GODFATHER--not an easy movie in which to stand out--as well as his memorable portrayal of dyspeptic detective Philip K. Fish on BARNEY MILLER and the later spinoff, FISH.

  1. The "Fish" spinoff centered on Fish's home life with his wife Bernice and their adopted kids (including a pre-"Diff'rent Strokes" Todd Bridges). A two-tier set was built for the show, where the upstairs was really upstairs!

    And you showcased the Archie comics art of Abe's brother Bill over at the Four Color Shadows blog.
